Performance issues since July balance patch
Now having significant performance issues playing Northgard after this latest patch. The game is chugging on my Dell I7-6700 NVidia GTX 960M 16 GB Ram laptop. Up until this point I've never experienced any slowdowns with this game. Now it is barely playable. Using Direct X I believe. Help! Do I need a new computer or will these performance issues be solved in a new patch?
I have encountered performance issues only on larger maps (> 4 players)
Confirm this, larger maps and longer games with more than 3-4 clans present. (haven't tested it after 9th Aug patch, will do so when possible for me and will update this).
confirm this too , tried both mp , sp it happens
Also this seems to get worse if I play multiple matches in a row (without restarting the complete game). Eg. fame “popup” (Thane) begins to noticeable stop the game and takes quite a lot of time to display.
Had no problems approx. a month ago.

late game gives me 30FPS in either lowest graphic settings or max graphics quality. CPU and GPU utilization is no more than 15%.
GTX 1070 + Ryzen 5 3600 + 16GB 3200Mhz
I have no such big perfomance issues, but annoyng game lag (stuck 1-2 seconds) when some events occured (torfin ram, building explode, squirel forest grow). Like game loafding some resourses or recalculate an synchronize something.
me too lag

Game on Mac OS runs around 2!!!-10 fps constantly, which on windows PCs with lower specifications it runs smoothly

After the last maintenance, constant braking started and it is not possible to play. Everything was in order before the preventive work!
My wife and I have started playing the game again recently and large maps freeze and lag constantly... making the game almost unplayable.
Gameplay starts to have performance issues, including during single player, when progressed through larger maps or with more players / AI. The controls are lagged or non-responsive from keyboard, the music slows & stutters, including during game pause menu. with all game performance settings changed to low, running Windows 10, Alienware, Intel i7-700HQ 4-core 2.8Ghz x64, 4GB RAM, NVidia GeForce 1050Ti. Have also tried running in DirectX & OpenGL from Steam start menus, similar issues on 2x different but identical spec machines.

I get stuttering on larger maps every once in a while, seems to happen when I play for long periods of time.
64GB RAM, 2x Nvidia RTX 3090 FE, Ryzen Threadripper. I run in DirectX
Okay, lets go:
AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core Prozessor
16 GB Ram
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT
Even so my Specs are much higher, than the requirements on the Steampage, I experience some FPS Issues, especially in longer games, in singleplayer as well as in multiplayer.
At the start of the match, i have barely 60 fps. I would be totally okay with that, but it drops after some time ingame to 30 fps or even lower.
My drivers are up to date.
And looking at my task manager, nothing there is over 30%, so, this must be an issue with the game, right? If so, are there any fixes? I already fiddlet with all the settings in the games menu, and i can't say it changed anything.
It's a really fun game, so it would be really sad, if there's nothing, i could do. :/
- 16 GB Ram
- NVIDIA 1650 SUPER
Game freezes for one second every time something changes, for example:
- Place a new building on the map.
- Complete a building.
- Discover new territory.
- Assign people to a building.
The size of the map doesn't prevent the freeze, it just makes it faster.
Tried without unsuccessfully:
- Tried launching the game with the 3 graphics options (open-gl etc).
- Decrease graphics to minimum settings.
Having the same issue. Performance is fine early on but tanks further on into a game. Even after the game has ended on the statistics screen during the replay fps is horrible. Runs at 15-25 fps with 1 person and 6 AIs while not hosting the game. Sound will stutter when performance drops down to 1 fps for about a second before jumping back up to 15-25 fps.
Graphical settings seem to have almost 0 impact on performance when it tanks. Tried pretty much every combination of the ones available in game.
Also tried DirectX, DirectX 32bit, OpenGL and used DXVK to see if performance with Vulkan was any better. Tried the "Disable Fullscreen optimization" option on the Northgard.exe
Ryzen 5 2600x
GPU runs around ~40-60% when the problem happens while CPU runs ~20-25%
3-Opengl, Directx11,Directx11 32bit
4-during the game, at a random moment, the game does not respond and crashes
Previously, the game worked fine, did not play for 3 months and now it crashes, just does not respond, reinstalled on different disks, changed drivers, settings, run as an administrator, nothing helps
The game soes not runing.
2 win 11
3 tryed both
4 after running (from steam or from shortcut on desktop) thinking in few seconds and game shutdown. But severals days ago all was perfect.
